Moulinsart S.A.– the company established to protect and promote the work of Hergé, the creator of the internationally beloved boy reporter Tintin – has selected Diamond Comic Distributors as its exclusive distributor of The Adventures of Tintin merchandise to specialty stores in North America and the Philippines.
Steven Spielberg’s take on Herge’s Tintin has arrived in the United States, and is on track to at least make it into the top five for the weekend (hopefully beating out Alvin & the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked).
Tintin and Captain Haddock set off on a treasure hunt for a sunken ship commanded by Haddock’s ancestor. But someone else is in search of the ship.
We want to know what think! Use the comment section below to share your thoughts on the adaptation. Did the animation cross into the uncanny valley, is it suitable for children of all ages, or did Steven Spielberg miss the mark?
The new trailer for Tintin has arrived, and it reveals more of the story than before. It still has the disturbing Uncanny Valley character designs, but I think most people will get past that pretty quickly.
The first poster for the Spielberg/Jackson Tintin movie has arrived.
Though I’m not sold on the mo-cap portion of the movie, nor I’m I excited about the movie being in 3D/3-D, I still want to see it.
The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn is the first in the series of 3D motion capture films based on the iconic character created by Georges Remi, better known to the world by his pen name “Hergé.” The film stars Bell as Tintin, the intrepid young reporter whose relentless pursuit of a good story thrusts him into a world of high adventure. The movie adapts both Hergé’s “The Secret of the Unicorn” and “Red Rackham’s Treasure,” using the title of the former.
In this issue: The Major Spoilers Crew goes outside their comfort zone and takes a look at The Adventures of Tintin.

It’s all in this issue of the Major Spoilers Podcast!
This will be the last Tintin post for the day, I promise, but during my daily trip through the Internet, I began looking for other interpretations of the Herge character.Â Â And i found one from Javier Burgos Arroyo.
TintÃn (and MilÃº AKA Snowy), was my fav character in my childhood (well, Asterix and Obelix were close too), I had so much fun reading his adventures one time and another… Its also the kind of comic I always wanted to draw. He still rocks.
This week, on the Major Spoilers Podcast, the Major Spoilers Crew is getting out of their element and exploring the Tintin and the Curse of the Pharaoh collection by Herge.
From the Wiki
Tintin and his dog Snowy are on a cruise ship in the Mediterranean Sea when they meet Dr Sarcophagus, an Egyptologist who owns a papyrus that he believes will lead him to the undiscovered tomb of the Pharaoh Kih-Oskh (a pun on kiosk, a newspaper stand). He invites Tintin to accompany him. Tintin also has an unpleasant encounter with Roberto Rastapopoulos, a wealthy businessman.
